Shades for Migraine Pet Photo and Funniest Photo Winner
On June 21, I participated in the Shades for Migraine photos campaign and won the funniest photo and pet photo. My pictures were then voted on for best photos and We Won!!!!! Thank you for voting!!!! It small victories like this inspire me to continue my advocacy efforts!
We won in the pet and funniest categories. This picture was taken with my daughter, this summer. It was her first year on the swim team and it was a summer of ribbons, laps, friends, and fun. She won the most dedicated award at the end of the season for her age range. Her dedication, willingness to practice and bravery should be a lesson for us all.
Never give up, keep trying and take each stroke at a time.
The cap that I am wearing is a “brain hat” from Miles for Migraine. Miles for Migraine recognizes its migraine sufferers/fighters with a purple cap and supporters with a pink cap.
Best Pet Photo
We had fun with this photo. When I saw that my sweet Lucia won, I cried. Ok, so it doesn’t take more than a glance of her to make me cry….but this time I was proud. As most of you know, we lost Lucia this summer and she was My Migraine and Life warrior. Seeing that she won, even after her passing made me so proud. I’m proud that she continues to advocate for migraine and proud that she was my supporter every day. I feel so lucky to have had her in my life for 13 years. She was my best friend and my migraine sidekick during the hardest years of my life (so far). Because of her, I feel like a winner! I will always hold the time we had together as my reward.
Thank you again to all who voted for our Shades for Migraine photos…
